"Pey La Tour carries the “Bordeaux AOC” designation. While that is the lowest ranked classification a wine can be awarded and still enjoy vin de Bordeaux status, it has no pretentions toward being a Premiers Cru, nor does it come with the pretentious price of one. What it does purport to be is affordable, premium Bordeaux wine; something that has become a rarity the last forty years."
